Advances in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s Clinical & Research Conference is one of the foremost events for investigators and clinicians to come together, share their knowledge and experience, and learn about the latest advances and new insights for personalized care of patients with IBD.

New This Year:
• The use of probiotic therapy and complementary medical therapy in IBD
• New biologics in development
• Management of the pregnant IBD patient and fertility issues
• Expanded sessions for nurses and pediatric specialists
• Endoscopy advances in IBD

• Is combining biologics or using as monotherapy preferable for Crohn’s disease?
• The risk of lymphoma with biologic therapies and whether that should guide treatment selection

Case-based breakout sessions will provide a practical look at complicated clinical issues.
Researchers will meet in separate sessions to review the state of the art in basic science, genetics, microbiology and immune regulation in IBD and have the opportunity to meet with thought leaders in small sessions for interactive discussions of unanswered basic research questions. Animal models and mechanisms of inflammation in IBD will be addressed in separate sessions. Presentation of research abstracts will allow investigators to share their studies with colleagues.
The outstanding faculty is comprised of expert specialists, both the familiar and the new, including some of the top thought leaders from Europe.
• Fully accredited for physicians and nurses
